Announcing The New Platform API

We're very happy to announce a new service at Tipjoy. It's called the Platform API and it makes is easy for sites that host content to split tips with content creators.

This is really exciting because it means more of the great content online will be tippable. Both the content creators and the hosts directly benefit from the support of fans of the content.

The Platform API is in closed beta, and you'll find an application here.

We have some excellent partners doing some initial testing of the service. They include Disqus, Weebly, bug.gd, OurDoings, iJigg.

We'll be showcasing each of these services and how they'll use Tipjoy.

But to give you an idea of why our partners are excited, here is Matthew, co-founder of bug.gd:
For us over at bug.gd — this is really a handy concept. We thrive off of users contributing their findings back to the community.

Over the years, it’s always struck me as odd that there hasn’t been an easy way online of showing one’s token of gratitude to those who saved you lots of time. Now sites can build that plumbing into their communities without much hassle at all.

Whether it's coders helping each other out or reading a hilarious blog post, giving back has never been easier.

Hello there,
We've been watching Tipjoy for some time, and like its approach.

We would like to begin integrating it in the near future - do you plan to fully open your API, or is it already accessible by the public?

Thanks!

Regards,
Sean GRove
